I seriously have a hard time believing that this guy is actually religious...(especially since his biggest segment when he was a Daily Show correspondent was the hilariously irreverent "This Week in God").
On a related note, this ordeal in Washington is becoming a textbook case of WHY we have a separation of church and state. If you favor one group, you piss off everyone else. And, if you try to appease every group that asks for endorsement...you're going to have to put up with a whole lot of crazy crap.
Oh, and Fred Phelps. And Bill Donahue (who blames it all on the governor letting atheist sign in, rather than, you know, the nativity scene and menorrah that originally obliged them to also put up that sign...you can also go here to see him whine about the fact that other holidays are celebrated in December and people are more tolerant of religious displays from religious minorities). They opened the door, and now they are slamming it shut so that they can figure out what to do now that too many people are seeking to put up their own display (allegedly, to "compete" with the atheist sign. Heh, whatever). Yet I am sure that no one will learn anything from this except that "those durn atheists ruined everything"!
